Have you started thinking about holiday cards?

Holiday cards used to stress me out. Full of crafty good intentions, I'd buy a bag full of blank cards, rubber stamps, colorful gel pens and glitter. And then I'd lose steam about 10 cards in.

Soon enough we had kids and the pressure was on to do photo cards. But do you remember those awful holiday postcards people used to get from the drugstore photo department? They were horrible and super-Christmasy and I refused to buy them.

Thank goodness for online card offerings. You can get a photo card designed and personalized in 10 minutes or less and the quality of the designs improves every year. Seriously, I would not be embarrassed to send cards like this retro-fabulous one or this fun 20 eleven number from Shutterfly's New Year’s cards collection to my art director friends.

Even though we're Jewish, I tend to like sending New Year's cards or even generic holiday cards instead of Hanukkah cards. After all, if I prefer to not get Christmas greetings, it doesn't seem right to push our ultimately pretty unimportant holiday on non-Jews. That said, if I was going to send a Hanukkah card, it would be this one.
